The DreamWrights Board of Directors and Staff would like to welcome Melanie Yan Detzel to the family! Melanie joins us to fill the role of our front- and box-office administrator. Here’s a little bit of info on Melanie who joins us on Jan. 6.
Melanie Yan Detzel grew up in New Jersey and received a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Acting from Montclair State University, with a minor in Business Administration. While in school, she performed in numerous plays and short films, produced the annual benefit performance of Eve Ensler’s “Vagina Monologues,” interned with the Cell. an Artistic Salon in Chelsea, New York, and assistant directed with Jazz House Kids, a nonprofit School for Jazz, for their after school youth jazz musical program. After graduation, she relocated to Los Angeles, California to pursue her dream of working as a barista, a receptionist at an international backpacker’s hostel, shopgirl on Melrose, Lyft driver, bookkeepers assistant, and fashion public relations intern. Sometimes, she would find the time to audition and you can find glimmers of her appearance in several music videos and one episode of a daytime courtroom show.
Melanie is relatively new to the York County area and is thrilled to join the DreamWrights community. In her spare time, she enjoys hiking and traveling with her husband, their two children, and two dogs.
